Jølster 2008 portrays a year in the life of one Norwegian ‘kommune’. Jølster, situated in the fjord district of west Norway, has around 3000 inhabitants, situated around lake Jølster. The idea behind this project was to build a historical document, a visual story about the way of life in Norway today. Influenced by 20th century photographers, this project portrays individuals and groups, showing both their private and public lives, looking at less conspicuous members of society. The work was completed using strict limitations. All pictures were taken in 2008.
